Agricultural product quality and safety are local
and international research hotspots. China was the world’s largest producer of edible fungi, but quality and safety problems
restricted the sustainable development of this industry, which is the sixth
largest class of agricultural products in China. Consumers have become
increasingly concerned with the quality and safety of edible fungi because they
can be easily contaminated with heavy metals, chemical pesticide residues,
chemical additives, and microbes. This study summarized the safety problems of
edible fungi to develop control measures for ensuring their quality and safety.
